The following symbols are used all the time with Bullet Journals. I think they are a great way to keep on track with everything that is going on.
O = Event
X = Complete

These are used a lot for your weekly and daily lists.
How to Start Using a Bullet Journal
You can use any journal.
It's important to keep in mind the size of the journal you choose. If you pick one too big, it is hard to carry around with you. If it's too small it will be impossible to write everything you want down.
Make sure you get a journal with a dotted grid format. This is the best type of version for Bullet Journaling. There are many great journals out there.
These are my top picks to get you started on Bullet Journalling.
At the end of the day, if you're tired of trying to find old to-do lists and keep losing your post-it notes. Give Bullet Journalling a go, as this journal captures everything in one place and it is easy to keep by your side.
